Guided by the wisdom of Matthew 25:40, “Whatever you did for the least of these my brothers and sisters, you did for me,” our pastors, teachers, lay staff, case workers, ministry leaders, health chaplains, and volunteers will continue the crisis work they started in March of 2020. We are building on the work that the Church has always done, serving the most vulnerable among us wherever there is need.
For all who have contracted coronavirus, We pray for care and healing. For those who are particularly vulnerable, We pray for safety and protection. For all who experience fear or anxiety, We pray for peace of mind and spirit.
